The fresh mosto is first cleared, then reduced to around 14% brix, then fermentated.

For the “english method” certified organic molasses is processed.

An English food analysis institute (Campden BRI / GB) has tested the rum and comes to the following verdict: “Upscale rum bouquet (nose), full-bodied and complex, excellent sensory properties.“
